Thank you for your warm response to my first post , it’s wonderful to see the joy that food brings! I believe food is all about sharing. I’m glad to see you think so, too. Today I decided to work on two desserts, both based on French meringue. I love working with this stuff. I then spoon the meringue, that I’ve colored with a bit of powdered colorant into five exquisite pastel colors, into little pots. I make my meringues using a piping bag and put them in the oven on a very low heat for about one hour and 30 minutes. I arrange my meringues in a little box lined with a doily, and close it with a charming piece of string, a colorful card and little pompoms. The second dessert is a pavlova. Makes you wish it was teatime, doesn’t it?

Plus, it’s just fun to try new things. You’ll need some unflavored gelatin… …four tablespoons or about six envelopes. Add the gelatin to cold water to soften.

And then add sugar and boil. Pour the mixture into pans… …and add a little bit of flavored extract. Of course you’ll want to make them in a few colors. You’ll only need to add a drop or two of food coloring though. Here’s where I could have made things go a little easier. Let’s just say I got myself into a sticky situation. After you pour the mixture into the pans, you’ll need to let it chill overnight in the fridge so it will set up and allow you to cut it into cubes. But after a little struggling, I managed to get cute cubes that I could cover in sugar. Now the hard part. Ugh. See. So when in doubt, spray … or use non-stick pans. These were so fun to see actually come together. Cute. Enjoy! Oreo Marshmallows. Marshmallows are a curious sweet treat for me.

When I was younger I wasn't crazy about them, I loved to heat them up in the microwave and watch them expand, but I never ate them straight out of the packet that much. But ever since Sweetness The Patisserie opened up near me I found out how good handmade marshmallows could be. It was a revelation, and I have been making my own marshmallows ever since. I only ever use store-bought ones when I need to use marshmallows as part of another recipe and I'm too lazy to whip up my own. Now that I have a KitchenAid, marshmallows are a so quick and easy to make and the mixer does all the work to make them super fluffy. I was undecided about the best way to present these marshmallows.

I was really happy with how the recipe turned out. Marshmallow making is definitely a lot easier when you have a stand mixer; there's a lot of whisking involved and pouring hot sugar syrup at the same time that can be tricky. Heart milk cubes. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I am excited to share a couple projects to celebrate the holiday with subtly and style. These milk heart cubes are a sweet surprise for your man’s morning coffee or a tall glass of milk. As they melt, the milk turns pink (the twins were in love!). To make the milk cubes, combine milk and a few drops of red food coloring together in a small bowl. Fill an ice cube tray, my heart one is from Ikea and freeze overnight.

So easy, right!?! PS. Polka Dot Cake from Bake Pop Pan. Find the tutorial on how to make an Ice Cream Cake with surprise inside polka dots as seen on KUTV Channel 2 here. Will putting polka dots inside a cake work? How does one do that? I conducted a little experiment to find out. Perhaps you've seen these in the store lately and walked right by them. Like I did. I kept asking myself, "Why in the world would I possibly need that when I can roll a perfectly round cake ball with my own two hands? " After researching cake ball pans a bit, I settled on this brand. I started with a white cake mix and made some of the adjustments recommended in the instruction guide that came with the bake pop pan. You can see the bright colors in the vents peeking through after the clamps were put on.

The instruction guide also suggests spraying some non-stick baking spray with flour on the outside of the vents. One of the happiest surprises of the day was that the volcanoes were more like little caps that popped off almost by themselves leaving the insides intact. Valentine’s Day Egg in the Basket | Reclaiming Provincial. The other day, my brother and I were talking about fish sandwiches. (Weird opening sentence, I know.) He informed me that the café where he works serves a sandwich called the Son of Salmon, to which I replied, “. . . wait, what?!” I spent the next hour brainstorming sandwich names for my future food cart, Killer Sandwiches. The ToasTed Bundy. The Jarls Manson. Traditionally, the way to make this is to assemble the sandwich, cut out the center, then crack an egg into the middle once you begin grilling. Valentine’s Day Egg in the Basket The ingredients are pretty self-explanatory and customizable, so I’m not going to bother listing them.

Assemble your sandwich, then butter one side of the bread. Butter the uncooked side of the sandwich. Cover the pan (this will help the egg cook quicker and melt the cheese) and let everything cook for a couple minutes, checking regularly after one minute to make sure nothing is burning. Teeny Tiny Rainbow Cakes. You’ve probably seen many full-size rainbow cakes (here's one with White Chocolate Buttercream and who can resist this Vanilla Rainbow Cake?). But there’s something special about having a tiny little rainbow cake of one’s own, which is why I’m making these for a friend’s birthday later this month. They’re just the ticket to bring a smile to anyone’s face, especially a slightly birthday-weary guest of honor! These are easy to make, and a fantastic candidate for “make-ahead” due to the freezer time involved.

The parchment paper is actually, I believe, the most important part of the recipe—the layers are so thin that there’s no other way to handle them. The parchment paper provides both stability AND mobility! Measure out six sheets of parchment paper to line your 9”x13” pan. You’ll want a couple inches of overhang on the long sides of the pan. Divide the mixture evenly into six bowls.

Preheat your oven, and prepare the first layer. Bake the layer for about 10 minutes. Don’t worry! Rainbow Cherry Jigglers Recipe. Picture 44701 « DIY Geometric Favor Boxes. DIY Pinata Cupcakes.

The perfect cheesecake. Oreo Cupcakes. I realize St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow & with a name like Kerry & a somewhat Irish heritage, I should probably be posting something dyed green or spiked with Bailey's. About that. I forgot St. Patrick's day was this month I made these instead. I suppose you could always spike them with Bailey's if you really wanted to be festive. It took me a long time to jump on board the cupcake trend. Also I just really love cookies. These cupcakes are a little bit of both and were so much fun to make. Maybe next time. And want to know a secret? They're baked with a double stuffed Oreo cookie on the bottom!

They get kind of soft & dreamy & cake-like in the oven. And the cookies & cream whipped cream frosting? Why yes, I didcould eat it with a spoon for breakfast. Side note: Never turn a mixer full of whipping cream & powdered sugar on full-on high unless you feel like cleaning your entire kitchen. Unrelated side note: Meet my newest love. Oreo Cupcakes Printable Recipe Makes 15 cupcakes. Death By Oreo Cupcakes. They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried.

A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor. So, in this recipe there is Oreo's in the cake, in the frosting, and at the bottom is a Oreo surprise. That's right, you put a whole Oreo at the bottom of the cake. The cookie stays firm, which makes it a little interesting to eat against the soft cake, but it actually gave a really yummy crunch. Overall this is an amazing cake. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
